Product description

Cfengine is a compact automation framework primarily used to provide automated configuration and maintenance of laptops, desktops, servers, and mainframes. It is not a very complex framework, but certainly is extensive. There is too much to learn and it is hard to convey in a simple way what the software can do. That is where this book steps in and saves your day. Cfengine 3 Beginner's Guide is the first and only book dedicated to Cfengine. It dives deep into using the framework's 'promise' language to solve complex data center problems. Find all the details you ll need about using the advanced functions and variables, with easy-to-understand examples. The book also covers complex work flows that showcase the framework s possibilities. This book starts off with step-by-step instructions for installing and configuring the Cfengine server and clients, and moves on to configuring systems using Cfengine scripts. The author then walks you through the policy decision flow, conducting system and security audits. This is followed by detailed discussions, through various examples, on how you can use Cfengine to configure systems, users, networks, databases, web servers et al. Adding to this, the book also provides a list of best practices, Cfengine policy decision flow, and how you may use the Cfengine Orion Cloud pack. By the end of the book you should be able to write policies for automating your complex data centre tasks. Automate your Builds, Deployments, Management, and Audits with one efficient, dependable and versatile Cfengine framework.
